After a brief foray with a Superlite back on page 99, I've rejoined the Repco club. This time I've gone a bit further up in the world, with a Vertex Vicenza!

This one's had a respray at some point, which seems quite nicely done. Frame/fork/headset came in at 2.7kg - a fairly respectable weight for the time. Hell of a lot lighter than the Superlite - not that it was every going to be competitive there.

Build plans are with Campag - maybe Record 10 speed, maybe Potenza/Centaur 11. Have some black Cinelli bars laying around which would pair nicely with a black 1A or 1R stem, if I can find some. Selle Italia Flite 1990 would match nicely for the saddle.

Hi all. New here to this forum and hoping you can help out. I have a Repco Olympic 14 bought in early 1998. I was wondering if anyone can point me in the direction of the specs for this bike? TIA.

I picked up a Repco Superlight Road Frame yesterday, that I will build up over time. :D I'd post a pic of it but this place does my head in for doing it. :(
